Barcelona are keeping an eye on the Jadon Sancho situation at Manchester United and will consider a loan move in January if he remains an outcast at Old Trafford.

How long the Sancho saga will play out for is unclear, with Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag criticising the winger for his poor performances in training, which first publicised the issue.

The 23-year-old fired back on social media, critisicing his manager and claiming he was being made a scapegoat for Manchester United’s problems on the field.

Sancho was not involved in the squad as United were beaten 3-1 by Brighton at Old Trafford on Saturday and it is far from clear when or if he will play for the club again.

Spanish publication Sport report that Barcelona are well aware of the situation and would be interested in a January loan move for the under-fire star if he is available.

Manchester United were reportedly open to selling Sancho over the summer before this public spat even occurred, but whether they will be happy to loan him out is yet to be seen.

Ten Hag was non-committal on when Sancho could play for the Red Devils again when asked ahead of the clash with Brighton.

Asked if he would consider playing Sancho again, Ten Hag replied: ‘I don’t know. I am sitting here. Tomorrow we have a big game, we are going into a new block of games, many games in a condensed programme. I focus on that.

‘I don’t know [how long the disciplinary issue will take] but, as I say, I don’t think about that. I think about tomorrow. I think about the way the team has to progress. We go to Champions League. I have a lot to consider to make the right decisions.

‘I don’t think this subject is important. I think what is important is I have to prepare my team. So that’s what I do. It is also not about me, it is about the team and the club. I put my energy into giving the best performance tomorrow against Brighton.

‘I prepare my team the best I can, I put all my effort into the players who are available. He [Sancho] is not available, so in this moment, he is not important, because he can’t contribute.’
